Even if you’re pregnant, it’s better to be safe than sorry — trying to lift and move heavy pieces of furniture yourself may give you sprained muscles or a back injury, especially if you’re trying to do the work alone. There are no hard and fast rules about how much is safe to lift when you’re pregnant, so it’s best to let others help you with your moving.If you choose to hire a professional moving service, the risk of injury to you or your children is much reduced. You and your family don’t even have to be present during the move, and many moving companies also sell boxes, supplies and everything else you need to move easily and quickly.
If you want insurance, that adds to the cost. But even though others are moving your furniture, you must often still do a lot of prep work – things such as measuring your furniture, and the width and height of the doors and stairs it has to pass through. And even if you buy insurance, there is still a risk that your valuable furniture might be scratched, dinged or torn. However, this risk is a great deal less with experienced movers.
There is a third alternative that reduces or eliminates these concerns. You can engage a professional furniture service that will disassemble your couch and other furniture for moving, transport it safely to your new residence, and then reassemble it inside your new home. The risk of an accident is taken away, because large, heavy pieces are simply taken apart and carried out piecemeal, eliminating the threat of a furniture accident that might result in an injury.
Sofa disassembly and reassembly also allows you to move even a large couch into a small apartment, and you don’t have to worry about small elevators, stairways or doors. If you want to reupholster or change a piece of furniture, the professional can also perform these services at the same time, so that when you receive it, it’s like a brand new piece of furniture. Furniture disassembly and reassembly is often less expensive than a traditional moving service, and it’s much safer than moving your furniture by yourself. Protect your children during a move, and eliminate the risk of a furniture accident, by choosing furniture disassembly and reassembly, rather than a traditional method.
